In honor of his 80th birthday, our friend Ray Murray held a celebratory lunch to benefit Phoenix House. Gathering 350 of his closest friends and family members in Tampa, Ray asked his guests to donate to Phoenix House in lieu of gifts. At the lunch, Patrick McEneaney, regional director of our New England and Florida programs, introduced Ray’s son Mike. His grandson, Ryan, then gave a moving tribute to his grandfather. Thus far, the celebration has raised over $45,000 for Phoenix House. We thank Ray for his incredible generosity and wish him many more years of health and happiness.
